Hey guys!

I haven't forgotten you! I just haven't had much to post about. Or maybe I have, but I've just been too beat. Trying to clean this big ole house and it, still, is mighty dusty! No sewing to speak of. Spring is in the air and I can't seem to concentrate on quilting. Must be time to set it aside and start cleaning and weeding the flowerbeds. Or maybe just sit in the old swing and crochet a doily or two. Aren't I bad? Such a brat! Company coming and here I sit, chatting with you! Back to work or maybe to bed! Have a great week and here's hoping you are enjoying some warmer weather!

That time of year, again...
I try to make the graduating(from college) seniors a quilt for their graduation party. I usually only have one a year. I think I have 3 this year- need to get moving on it. These are two that I have done in the past and I like this pattern because it is the fastest thing, ever. I got the pattern in an old Fons and Porter magazine. Need to get the fabs- batiks work best because there are big pieces and it still gives it motion and interest. They sew up in an evening and quilt up fast, too.
My Mom and sisters, Steph and Lisa, are here for a few days- no sewing, just a lot of talking and playing and laughing. When they leave it will be time for me to hit the sewing machine, hard. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Isn't that one of the prettiest things you have ever seen??? My Aunt Isobel- who is just way cool- had this basket delivered to the girls- to help with their recovery. Mission accomplished. They are planning a big tea party this afternoon. Thank you so much Aunt Isobel.
